     Cartea “Imagistica în bolile ficatului” se adresează unui public larg format din medici specialiști radiologi, gastroenterologi sau chirurgi specializați în patologie hepatică. De asemenea ea reprezintă un bun instrument de a învăța imagistică hepatică pentru medici rezidenți (în principal de gastroenterologie sau radiologie) și studenți.

    Ea reflectă experiența autorului în patologia hepatică, experiență rezultată ca urmare a aproape 10 ani de colaborare cu Institutul Regional de Gastroenterologie și Hepatologie “Octavian Fodor” Cluj. Fiecare patologie prezentată în carte este explicată cu ajutorul imaginilor, rezultând astfel 106 figuri, cele mai multe compuse din mai multe imagini de ecografie, computer-tomografie sau imagistică prin rezonanță magnetică. Sunt ilustrate, cu imagini din colecția autorului, atât patologii frecvent întâlnite cât și patologii mai rare, cum ar fi, spre exemplu sindromul Budd-Chiari, adenoamele hepatice inflmatorii sau colangiocarcinomul intrahepatic. Imaginile de ecografie provin, în mare parte, din colecția Domnului Profesor Badea.
    Cartea este compusă, în mare, din trei părți:
    - O primă parte, introductivă, în care se face un rapel anatomic și se prezintă, pe larg, fiecare tehnică imagistică utilizată în explorarea ficatului. Sunt explicate noțiuni de semiologie imagistică și se fac referiri la indicațiile ecografiei, computer-tomografiei și imagisticii prin rezonanță magnetică în patologia hepatica
    - A doua parte este dedicată hepatopatiilor difuze. Aici sunt prezentate semnele ecografice, CT și RMN de steatoză hepatică și, de asemenea, se face referire la modul în care poate să fie cuantificată imagistic steatoza. Sunt prezentate semnele imagistice de ciroză hepatica, în funcție de tehnica imagistică utilizată. Sunt descrise aspectele radiologice întâlnite și în alte hepatopatii difuze, cum ar fi hepatita acută, Sindromul Budd-Chiari, hemocromatoza sau hepatita acută
    - A treia parte a cărții este dedicată diagnosticului diferențial și pozitiv al leziunilor focale hepatice. Sunt prezentate elementele de diagnostic ce pot orienta diagnosticul ecografic, CT sau IRM spre un anumit tip de leziune focală hepatica, benignă sau malignă. Fiecare tip de leziune focală hepatica este ilustrat cu imagini. Se insistă asupra criteriilor de diagnostic diferențial benign/malign al leziunilor focale hepatice, asupra complementarității tehnicilor imagistice și asupra rolului fiecăreia dintre ele.
     
    Concluzionând experiența bogată în patologia digestivă a autorilor cărții, raportarea informațiilor oferite de carte la cele mai noi date din literatura de specialitate și numărul mare de imagini originale și de bună calitate, ilustrând patologii numeroase și redate în foarte bune condiții grafice, fac din cartea “Imagistica în bolile ficatului” o foarte bună sursă de informare pentru toți medicii ce diagnostichează sau tratează boli ale ficatului. De asemenea datorită modului structurat și sistematizat în care este redactată, cartea poate să stea pe biroul de lucru al oricărui radiolog ce scrie rezultate ale unor examinări imagistice ale ficatului și care are nevoie de un acces rapid și țintit la o informație științifică de bună calitate.

    Description:

    Written by a multidisciplinary group of contributors, including radiologists, emergency physicians, critical care specialists, anesthesiologists, and surgeons, Fundamentals of Emergency Ultrasound is a first-of-its-kind reference that clearly explains the many technical nuances and diagnostic skills necessary for optimal use of ultrasound in emergency settings. This concise, easy-to-read resource covers both non-invasive and invasive ultrasound-guided procedures for a wide range of adult and pediatric trauma and non-trauma conditions. A practical emphasis on differential diagnosis helps facilitate rapid diagnosis, triage, and disposition decisions in emergency situations where ultrasound can be used.

    Provides a depth of understanding and interpretation from a multidisciplinary group of chapter authors, with step-by-step details on anatomy, equipment considerations, positioning, technique, normal and abnormal findings, and common pitfalls.

    Covers invasive procedures and ultrasound-guided injections such as thoracentesis, paracentesis, nerve blocks, and central and peripheral venous access.

    Includes correlative CT, MR, and Doppler images to enhance ultrasound visualization, in addition to more than 500 high-quality ultrasound images and 75 line drawings.

    Offers up-to-date coverage on the e-FAST, trans-thoracic and trans-esophageal echocardiography, pulmonary, and cranial sonography, among other emergency modalities.

    Features more than 150 ultrasound video clips that show the many nuances of ultrasound use.

    Gain new understanding from dozens of unknown cases reflecting the most recent changes in abdominal and small part ultrasound, including the scrotum and thyroid. 

    Understand the recent changes in the complexities of vascular ultrasound of the carotid, transplants, and extremities.

    Stay up to date with new thyroid cases and musculoskeletal cases, including rheumatoid arthritis and shoulder ultrasound.

    Expand your awareness of physics, state-of-the-art instrumentation, and common aritifacts with added new content.

    Clearly visualize what you’re likely to see on exams and in practice thanks to new images -- including color Doppler images.

    Description:

     

    This book covers the normal anatomy of the human body as seen in the entire gamut of medical imaging. It does so by an initial traditional anatomical description of each organ or system followed by the radiological anatomy of that part of the body using all the relevant imaging modalities. The third edition addresses the anatomy of new imaging techniques including three-dimensional CT, cardiac CT, and CT and MR angiography as well as the anatomy of therapeutic interventional radiological techniques guided by fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT and MR. The text has been completely revised and over 140 new images, including some in colour, have been added. A series of 'imaging pearls' have been included with most sections to emphasise clinically and radiologically important points. The book is primarily aimed at those training in radiology and preparing for the FRCR examinations, but will be of use to all radiologists and radiographers both in training and in practice, and to medical students, physicians and surgeons and all who use imaging as a vital part of patient care. The third edition brings the basics of radiological anatomy to a new generation of radiologists in an ever-changing world of imaging.
